Reservation Form

Requirements

All animals must have been out of the shelter environment for a minimum of 14 days prior to departure on transport. This will give potential illness time to present itself and time for their vaccinations to take effect.

Health Certificate

All animals boarding H.E.A.R.T.S. will be required to have an Interstate Health Certificate. This must be issued within 10 days of the dogs’ arrival at their destination. The health certificate must be fully completed and signed by the veterinarian. We require that copies of all medical records including Health Certificate be sent to us by the Thursday afternoon prior to transport. We will no longer be checking paperwork at loading. This will give us time to address any issues prior to loading and also assist in our record keeping. 

Vaccination Requirements

IMPORTANT-  5 WAY/7 WAY AND BORDETELLA MUST HAVE BEEN GIVEN AT LEAST 10 DAYS PRIOR TO LEAVING ON TRANSPORT. THIS WILL GIVE THEM TIME TO TAKE EFFECT.

  • Distemper/Parvo-Annually. Puppies under the age of 6 months old, must have received at least 2 sets of vaccinations with the second one being given at least 10 days prior to departure and at least 2 weeks apart. Puppies are fragile and we simply will not put them at risk. (WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND A 3RD/4TH DISTEMPER/PARVO SHOT). We only accept annual vaccinations, 3 year vaccinations (with the exception of rabies) will not be accepted.

IF YOU DO CHOOSE TO DO THESE, PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE GIVEN AT LEAST FIVE DAYS PRIOR TO TRANSPORT. VACCINATIONS CAN SUPPRESS THEIR IMMUNE SYSTEM AND THEY CAN HAVE ADVERSE REACTIONS TO THEM. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE ARE GIVEN ENOUGH IN ADVANCE TO AVOID ANY PROBLEMS DURING TRANSPORT.

Age Requirements

But, we have to be able to handle them safely and will not be able to transport him/her if we feel that we cannot do so.

These can be purchased on Amazon for a reasonable price via the link below. If you do not bring a slip leash with you to transport, we will have them available to purchase for $20. It will be a bit cheaper to purchase them ahead of time. We cannot accept regular collars/leashed, harnesses, or retractable leashes.

Each dog will come with an ID band on. Please leave this on them until they are safely home. 

Please keep a tight grip on your dogs leash and leave their leash on them for the entire trip home. Good quality slip leashes like the one listed above are VERY good leashes to keep your dog secure.
